just a broad assumption

M1 has to make do with the same battery which services most of the m43rds fleet, but which was really designed to suit the smallest specification.

on the upside
carrying an extra battery or three isnt that much of a hassle
but expected continuous shooting is likely a requirement for the grip
which I intend to do anyway

theyre selling 6 pack battery clones on ebay already

Olympus have updated 'lenses on M1' ad page here ==> http://tinyurl.com/mx3ts6c

Not all lenses but some FT of what I have and not the FT 9-18 which will be a favorite use lens for me.

What a cool web site. That's slick scrolling through the lenses on the body.

I now have my two zoom lens setup for when I decide to move up to the E-M1..

I've been wondering when the 35-100 would find your bag.............

I'm wondering if Olympus / Arlington Camera will have any deals at this years Photo Expo at Arlington Convention Center, 3rd weekend November. http://tinyurl.com/m7ruhl8

I could wait a couple weeks if some good incentive were there.

They were telling me about the upcoming Photo Expo while I was there on Saturday. They weren't saying much about deals.

Between the 35-100 on Saturday and purchasing a Tempur Pedic adjustable bed on Sunday......it was an expensive weekend.

The 35-100mm f2.8 is tiny..

That means you've never shot the 7-14. Or you wouldn't say that.

I believe he is talking about price vs performance. If you really need that extra 2mm on the low end then that might be a different story. I look at Bob's car shots with the 9-18 and I couldn't ask any more out of a lens.

the money doesnt worry me really
that 2mm makes the difference between capturing an entire bathroom and one with half a shower. This besides the fact that in any event it is sharper all the way to the horizon

and with video
7-14 has a lot less distortion
run it at 8mm and its very nearly flat edges

the 9-18 is more useful when you need 18mm
and its deeper hood protects it better from sunflares when shooting upsun

With your application and needs then the extra 2mm is a necessity and worth the investment. For my use the extra 2mm would not be worth the expense.

James, I've used both and I can assure you the IQ of the 7-14 SHG is unsurpassed. To argue that that improvement is not worth the money for you, is indeed a valid argument.

But if you're basing the comparison solely on the mechanical difference of field of view, you're missing a huge factor of comparison.
